    I appreciate you bringing in this idea to this forum.

    This report is indeed absurd. Forget about the illegality of the proposal - the minister seems to have taken the decision on wrong set of information - since when have our forests been over...
  4. The Inflection Point - Environment & Technology

    POSCO is a massive project in India. Some 50,000 people are going to be employed directly or indirectly through this project. As most readers would be aware, apart from the mines, POSCO also plans to...

    A recent news article shed light on the fact that the current MoEF is amongst the most business friendly ministers - having cleared over 95% of projects brought to his ministry. A more disturbing...

    The biggest obstacle to conservation is our apathy towards the cause. Finding conservators has become similar to the effort of diamond mining nowadays :) You dig a ton of dirt to find one true...

    The clash between development and conservation continues. Today conservation is more of a political decision rather than a scientific, empirical one. Large hydroelectricity projects have always been...

    Thats a welcome news.

    However IndiaWilds readers might be aware that many of the so called "man eater" tigers do not attack humans as their first recourse. Either they are old tigers looking for...

    Great news. This is a developing news though. Mining behemoths like Vedanta look at long term objectives. I hope change in central government (or Minister) would not lead to abandonment of the...

    As with most posts on this forum, this post sadly corroborates the detrimental effects of man on the ecosystem. This news is ironic as the current CM of Bihar had proposed the Gangetic Dolphin as...

    Probably the Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS is a lens I would retain for a very very long time.
